Local delivery company in Colorado raided by police

Two weeks ago we brought you the tale of marijuana home-delivery service Billygoatgreen MMJ. The company sought to slip through the section in Amendment 64 prohibiting receiving remuneration in exchange for cannabis by providing the substance for free and taking "donations" for growth and research instead.
It's a gray area with plenty of risk, as attorney Brian Vicente confirmed in our story. But as we also quoted Lt. Mark Comte with the Colorado Springs Police Department's Metro Vice, Narcotics and Intelligence Division, "If I show up at your house with less than an ounce of marijuana, I'm 21, you're 21, and I say, 'Hey dude, it cost me 50 bucks in gas to get over here,' and you give me 50 bucks for my gas, there's nothing illegal."
Well, maybe not, but either way, in the last couple days, owners of the service were contacted by police, arrested and charged with distribution, according to a post on Billygoatgreen's Facebook page.
"we met with a high profile lawyer and he says if we fight it and loose were looking at LIFE in PRISON!!!!! out on bail waiting for court dates," reads the statement posted yesterday. "they are using a undercover police boyfriend and girlfriend to trick people on craigslist. DET.Lemkool is the name of the undercover cop. first they say its legal to donate then arrest you and your looking at life in prison. not so sure that sounds fair"
